BEST BOOKS, PUBLISHED IN RUSSIA

I am planning to make an announcement about the best books in the Sport Industry published recently in Russia,  which  will attract the attention of the Sport professionals. Mostly it will be the number of the books directed to the Artistic Gymnastics, Acro Sport, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Circus Art, Choreography & Dance.

Taking into the account a massive political and  social pressure to the Russia within last few years, I decided to make my own steps in order to clarify the Russia’s achievements mostly in Elite Sport. My goal is to represent the best authors and their published works to the  people from around the World as an authors from the country which already made an incredible contribution to the  Olympic Movement.

This is why, I expect to get feedback from the people who are interested to read the proper books contains the truth about Russian Sport LIfe , instead of get some rumors and gossip about great Russian Athletes which (from my point of view) were, is and I am sure will be on the top of the Hierarchy of the Best . All references and possible offers of the any publication are very WELCOME.

MIKHAIL KLIMENKO: THE STRONG  AMONG STRONG 
The article is very important for understanding HOW STRONG  SOVIET SPORT MACHINE  WAS  BEFORE USSR COLLAPSED. The content of the article is almost about Central Army Club and system of practice established in this High Level of Elite  Gymnastics Club.
But from my point of view it can be considered as an extended Gymnastics Clinic done for the American/ Canadian  Coaches by Legendary USSR/ Soviet Army Coach Mikhail Klimenko. The most important is that the Foreign Coaches made their visit to TSKA after Tragical Injury happened to Yelena Mukhina … Their made it despite of rumors and gossips about how bad Mikhail Klimenko was and how dangerous tools he used in order to be the Number One in the World …
I really asking all my readers to make comments about this interesting article published in very important time frame: The Boycott of  the Moscow Olympics (1980) initiated by United States and Alternative Games in Olomouc  instead of Olympic  Games in Los Angeles (USA) initiated by USSR (1984).

MORE THAN A  GAME

More than a game – Women’s Gymnastics

I will not make my own comments about the program produced by American TV and leaded by Frank Gifford , one of the best Sport commentator in the World. His voice being so strong  convinced all of us that everything what he said is the TRUTH! I remember the time when Soviet Sport commentators were the same during their reports : strong, honest and very professional. I am sure that watching this program you will understand  means  THE GAME and MORE THAN A GAME  !?

GOODWILL GAMES ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS  (1990) SEATTLE, USA

Below is a very special  and memorable for me interview because it was time when USSR Artistic Gymnastics was incredibly strong and powerful. I was a  a successful Gymnastics Manager/ Coach/ Administrator which worked for Dynamo Moscow Gymnastics Club.

I will never forget the time when I was invited for the interview with … LARRY KING (USA) & VLADIMIR POSNER (USSR). The interview took place in Central  Club Army in Moscow. At this time for the security reason I was not allowed to make this interview at the area of the  Central Dynamo Stadium ( Moscow, Leningradskiy Prospect) . This is why I took my young Gymnasts to the Central Army Club which was located just straight across the street in couple blocks from Dynamo Stadium. Taking into the account the  time difference between Moscow and Seattle we have to be in place at 5:00 am…   The girls were still sleeping, but despite of this fact  we made this important interview  very well…

    Having read this I thought it was rather informative.

    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this information together.
    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both
    reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still
    worthwhile!

      Thank you for your time.I really appreciate the professional comments you made.After publishing my books in the United States I wrote a lot of articles, which were published mostly on Facebook. I think that the next step of my writing work will be the publishing all of my best posts, (mostly the Portraits and Essays) and my philosophical thoughts about “One Coach’s Journey from East to West & from West to East…
